Abstract
Description
This invention relates to a method for the high speed transmission of data, in particular in wireless personal communications.
During the last decade, the telecommunication industry has produced an explosion of wireless technology. This growth, together with recent developments in hardware miniaturization, has opened a new dimension to future wireless networks whose ultimate goal is to provide universal personal communications. To achieve such an objective, the next generation personal communications networks will need to be able to support a very high level of user traffic along with a wide range of highquality services with varying bit rates. These future services are likely to include video and LAN applications which require high speed transmission rates of several Mbps. However, the ability to achieve high bit rates at low error rates over wireless channels is severely restricted by the propagation characteristics of the wireless environment where signals typically arrive at the receiver via a scattering mechanism resulting in multiple propagation paths with different time delays, attenuation, and phasors. This causes a spread in delay times which imposes a limit on the maximum transmission rate. These restrictions manifest themselves as intersymbol interference (ISI) which leads to the introduction of an irreducible error floor. Therefore, without countermeasures to mitigate the delay spread impairments the information rate is usually limited to be under 1 Mbps when user mobility prevents steady lineofsight conditions.
One possible solution, which has received a lot of attention recently, is multicarrier modulation or multitone modulation in which the transmitted data is divided into several interleaved bit streams which are then used to modulate several subcarriers, see for example:
L. J. Cimini, Jr., "Analysis and simulation of a digital mobilechannel using orthogonal frequency division multiplexing," IEEE Trans. Commun., COM33, No. 7, pp. 665675, July 1985; I. Kalet, "The multitone channel," IEEE Trans. Commun., Vol. COM37, No.2, pp. 119124, February 1989; and J. A. C. Bingham, "Multicarrier modulation for data transmission: An idea whose time has come," IEEE Commun. Mag., pp. 514, May 1990.
However, such an approach requires equalization in the frequency domain which can prove to be quite complex with high transmission rates (of the order of 10 Mbps or higher for instance) and timevarying wireless channels. In addition, in multicarrier modulation a training waveform is often sent through the channel. The channel information is then fed back from the receiver to the transmitter so that the total transmitted power for the various subchannels can be allocated. To do so, however, can be quite complicated. In fact, the optimum power distribution for each subchannel should be calculated by a "waterpouring" informationtheoretic approach similar to that of R. G. Gallagher "Information Theory and Reliable Communications" Wiley, N.Y. 1968. This again requires a complex system whose performance degrades significantly if the channel feedback information is in error. The timevarying nature of the channel of wireless channels further requires constant update of this complicated process. An alternative approach is to send subcarrier pilots along with the transmitted information to assist phase and amplitude equalization in multicarrier modulation. However, it should be noted that this reduces the spectrum efficiency.
Another key advantage of multicode modulation is its ability to use interference cancellation as an effective technique for improving the overall system performance. Indeed, because of the special structure of the multicode modulation method there is only one channel for all data streams. Thereby, it is only necessary to estimate the channel parameters once which can be done for instance by allocating a pilot channel for that purpose. (Note that if pilot signals are to be used in multicarrier modulation, then multiple pilot signals along with multiple channel estimations will be required, thereby, making the system architecture quite complex.) In addition, in the multicode modulation method the signature sequences of all the data streams are known. Hence, it follows that one can use the pilot signal to estimate the channel parameters. These parameters can then be used as an effective means for cancelling the interference among the subchannels. Thereby, significantly improving the overall system performance.
According to the present invention there is provided a method for the high speed transmission of data in a wireless communication system comprising, dividing a highrate data stream into a plurality of parallel lowrate bit streams, wherein each said lowrate bit stream is modulated using directsequence spread spectrum as a single carrier.
The choice of signature sequences or codes is crucial because these codes must be able to separate the interference between the lowrate bit streams and their multipath duplicates. If both objectives in the code design can be achieved then the system sensitivity may be reduced to delay spread because of the spreading of the signaling interval and also take advantage of the inherent multipath rejection benefit without spreading the original bandwidth of the transmitted signal. As a result, the proposed method has the advantage of being more robust to fading and multipath problems than multicarrier modulation.
Traditionally, PN sequences such as msequences, Kasami sequences, or Gold codes have been used in spreadspectrum multiple access communications to separate the multiple users. However, in the method of the present invention the lowrate data streams are transmitted synchronously. As a result orthogonal sequences, such as Walsh codes, which have zero crosscorrelations when they are time synchronized, may be employed. However, multipath delays can introduce significant nonzero crosscorrelations between orthogonal codes and therefore an alternative choice of signature sequence may be more appropriate.
A preferred signature sequence may comprise a combination of orthogonal codes and PN sequences. A particularly preferred possibility is for the signature sequence of each lowrate bit streams to be multiplied by the same PN code and then separated by different orthogonal sequence. By means of this arrangement the randomness of the orthogonal codes is increased while at the same time their zero crosscorrelation property is maintained at zero time delay.
Preferably each said lowrate bit streams is subject to a processing gain of the order of the number of said lowrate bit streams. This makes it possible to obtain highrate DS spread spectrum modulation within the bandwidth of the original highrate transmission stream while maintaining the advantages of DS spread spectrum such as multipath rejection.
An embodiment of the invention will now be described by way of example and with reference to the accompanying drawings, in which:
FIG. 1 illustrates schematically the method of data transmission according to an embodiment of the present invention,
FIG. 2 shows the BER performance of the present invention as a function of the normalized delay spread,
FIG. 3 shows the BER performance of the present invention as a function of the spread spectrum resolution,
FIGS. 4 and 5 show the BER performance of the present invention as a function of the normalized delay spread and for different numbers of lowrate bit streams,
FIG. 6 shows the effect on BER of selection diversity, and
FIG. 7 illustrates a proposed interference cancellation method.
The proposed multicode modulation system is shown in FIG. 1. The incoming data bits with bit duration T_{b} are serialtoparallel converted into K parallel bit streams with symbol duration T=KT_{b} in a similar fashion to multitone modulation. After the serialtoparallel conversion, the symbols on each lowrate branch are modulated using DS spreadspectrum modulation in which the processing gain for each lowrate stream is of the order of K. Consequently, it is possible to achieve highrate DS spread spectrum modulation within the bandwidth of the original highrate transmission stream while maintaining the advantages of DS spreadspectrum such as multipath rejection. Furthermore, each of the DS spreadspectrum modulated lowrate streams passes through exactly the same wireless channel. As a result, power control will not be an issue as it is for multiple access spreadspectrum systems. This common wireless channel also implies that the received delay characteristics will be identitical for all lowrate data streams. Therefore, this makes the receiver design less intricate. For example, if a Rake receiver is required then the delay path search circuitry need only be implemented once rather than repeatedly for each individual lowrate stream.
In order to analyze the performance of the multicode modulation technique shown in FIG. 1 some definitions and notation need to be introduced. Specifically, let _{sk} (t) denote the transmitted signal for the kth data stream. Then ##EQU1## where P is the signal power, ω_{c} is the carrier frequency, and ψ is the carrier phase. Likewise, ##EQU2## is the binary data signal, and ##EQU3## is the signature sequence signal with p_{t} (t_{1}, t_{2}) being a unit rectangular pulse on t_{1}, t_{2}), b_{j}.sup.(k) Ε{1,1} where Pr(b_{j}.sup.(k) =1)=Pr(b_{j}.sup.(k) =1)=1/2, and the kth stream's code sequence a_{j}.sup.(k) Ε{1,1} with a_{j}.sup.(k) =a_{j+N}.sup.(k) for all j and k and for some integer N. The integer N is the minimum period of the spreading sequence. The chip length T_{c} will be assumed to be given by T_{c} =T/N where T is the symbol interval duration. Hence, there is one signature sequence a_{k} =(a_{o}.sup.(k), a_{1}.sup.(k), . . . , a_{N1}.sup.(k)) per data symbol.
A multipath Rayleighfading channel having a slow fading rate compared to the symbol rate may be assumed, so that the channel random parameters do not change significantly over several consecutive symbol intervals. It may also be assumed that the channel consists of a fixed number of faded paths. Specifically, the complex lowpass equivalent impulse response of the channel is given by ##EQU4## where L is the number of paths (A good approximation for L is L=.left brktbot.Δ_{m} /T_{c} .right brktbot.+1 where Δ_{m} is the maximum delay difference), and βl, τl, and γl are the lth path gain, delay, and phase for the kth data stream, and i=√1. Throughout, it may be assumed that for each l that the path phase of the received signal φl, given by (ω_{c} τl+γl), to be an independent random variable uniformly, distributed over 0,2π!. The path gains βl will be assumed to be independent Rayleigh random variables.
A useful function which characterizes a multipath channel is the "power delay profile" ##EQU5## This function is important since it can provide a key parameter; namely, the (rms) delay spread Δ which is defined as the square root of the second central moment. That is, ##EQU6## where the average delay μ_{d} is given by ##EQU7## It turns out that the bit error rates (BERs) for transmission through a multipath channel are strongly dependent on the normalized rms delay spread which is defined as
d=Δ/T (7)
where we recall that T is the symbol period. In fact, d must be significantly smaller than unity in order to prevent excessive irreducible BERs due to ISI in a conventional (K=1) nonequalized modulation scheme.
Throughout, we will restrict our consideration to the equalgain tworay profile ##EQU8## In this case, we have L=2, μ_{d} =Δ and d≡Δ/T. In addition, note that at a specific time delay t_{l} the channel impulse response, denoted by h(t_{l}), is a complex zeromean Gaussian random variable with variance p(t_{l}).
Now by combining Equations (1) and (4) and using the convolutional integral, the received signal, which will be denoted as r(t), can then be expressed as ##EQU9## where n(t) is the channel noise which is assumed to be a white Gaussian noise process with double sided power spectral density No/2.
Without loss of generality, we shall restrict our consideration to the 1st lowrate data stream. Further, we will assume that the desired receiver can coherently recover the carrier phase and delay lock to the jth path of the arriving desired signal. Therefore, if we let Z_{j} denote the output of the correlator receiver that is matched to the jth path of data stream 1. (When there are more than 2 significant paths, a Rake receiver structure with multiple correlators must be considered.) Then, the decision statistic is given by (assuming that the maximum delay difference is less than two symbols) ##EQU10## where t_{l} =τ_{l} τ_{j} and m=0 or 1 depending on whether t_{l} ≧0 or t_{l} <0. Likewise, ##EQU11## for 0≦τ<T and k=1, 2, . . . , K. It can be easily shown that the continuoustime partial correlation functions defined in (12) can be expressed as
R.sub.1.sup.(k) (τ)=C.sub.1.sup.(k) (lN)T.sub.c + C.sub.1.sup.(k) (l+1N)C.sub.1.sup.(k) (lN)!×(τlT.sub.c)
and
R.sub.1.sup.(k) (τ)=C.sub.1.sup.(k) (l)T.sub.c + C.sub.1.sup.(k) (l+1)C.sub.1.sup.(k) (l)!×(τlT.sub.c)
where l=.left brktbot.τ/T_{c} .right brktbot. and C_{1}.sup.(k) (l) is the aperiodic crosscorrelation function. That is, ##EQU12## and C_{1}.sup.(k) (l)=0 for l≧N. Also note that since n(t) is a white noise Gaussian process, it follows that η is a zero mean Gaussiani random variable with variance N_{o} T/4.
Now let P_{e} denote the system BER for the first lowrate data stream. Then ##EQU13##
Due to the symmetry of the problem, one can without loss of generality set b_{o}.sup.(1) =1. Hence, P_{e} ≡P(Z≧0b_{o}.sup.(1) =1). Specifically, (for simplicity, we will omit the conditioning on b_{o}.sup.(1) in our notation) ##EQU14## for l=1, 2, . . . , L and k=1, 2, . . . , K. Next let ##EQU15## denote the desired user "self" interference, and ##EQU16## denote the total cochannel interference. Likewise, let the random vector Θ=(B,D,Φ,b) where B=(β_{1},β_{2}, . . . ,β_{K}), D=(τ_{1},τ_{2}, . . . ,τ_{K}), Φ=(φ_{1},φ_{2}, . . . ,φ_{K}), and b=(b_{1},b_{3}, . . . ,b_{K}) where b_{k} =(b_{m1}.sup.(k),b_{m}.sup.(k)) for k=1,2, . . . ,K and m=0 or 1 again depending on whether the delay difference, t_{l}, is positive or negative as described above. Then, for a given Θ (with b_{o}.sup.(1) ≡1) the decision statistic Z_{j} is conditionally Gaussian. In particular,
P.sub.e =ƒ . . . ƒ.sub.θ P.sub.e (θ)ƒ.sub.θ (θ)d.sub.θ
where ƒ.sub.θ (θ) is the joint probability "density" function of Θ (Note that the term "density" is being used in a loose statistical sense as the random vector θ contains discrete and continuous random variables.) and ##EQU17## where E_{b} =PT is the energy per bit. Notice that if β_{l} =1 for all l and K=L=1, then we have no self nor cochannel interference and Eqn. (19) reduces to the wellknown BPSK result over the additive White Gaussian noise (AWGN) channel, ##EQU18## where Q .! is the complementary error function.
The probability of error as expressed in Equation (18) cannot be in practical situations evaluated analytically. As a result, Monte Carlo simulations must be often used to estimate P_{e}. Let I_{e} (Z_{j}) denote the indicator random variable of the error event {Z_{j} ≧0}. That is, I_{e} (Z_{j})=1 if Z_{j} ≧0. Otherwise, I_{e} (Z_{j})=0. Then the Monte Carlo estimator for P_{e}, P_{e}, is the sample mean estimator which simply counts the relative frequency of the event {Z_{j} ≧0} during N independent simulation trials and then estimates P_{e} as follows ##EQU19## where Z_{j}.sup.(1), Z_{j}.sup.(2), . . . , Z_{j}.sup.(N) are N independent and identically distributed (iid) random samples that are generated during the simulation trials. The Monte Carlo estimator as described in Equation (20) often requires a large number of simulation trials. This is especially true when the BERs are relatively small. A more efficient approach for estimating P_{e} can be obtained if one uses Eqns. (18) and (19). Indeed, notice that ##EQU20## where P_{e} (Θ.sup.(n)) is given by (19) and Θ.sup.(n) for n=1,2, . . ., N are iid random samples from ƒ.sub.θ (θ). Clearly, the computational cost required to achieve accurate estimates of P_{e} can be significantly decreased through the use of Equation (21) instead of Equation (20).
Now it is clear that the overall system performance is dependent on the choice of the signature sequences. Traditionally, PN sequences such as msequences, Kasami sequences, or Gold codes have been used in spreadspectrum multiple access communications to separate the multiple users. However, in this application the lowrate data streams are transmitted synchronously. As a result, since orthogonal sequences such as Walsh codes have zero crosscorrelations when they are time synchronized, one would expect that orthogonal signature sequences can be applied in multicode modulation. But, because multipath delays can introduce significant nonzero crosscorrelations between the orthogonal codes another choice of signature sequences may be more appropriate. A possible alternative is to use a combination of orthogonal codes and PN sequences. Specifically, the symbol sequences for the K data streams can be multiplied by the same PN code and then separated by different orthogonal sequences. By doing so, the randomness for the orthogonal codes is increased while at the same time their zero crosscorrelation property is maintained at zero time delay. Thus, the signature sequence a_{j}.sup.(k) can be for example, an orthogonal sequence (eg Walsh codes), or an orthogonal sequence multiplied or "concatenated" by a PN code which is the same for all data streams.
In this section, some sample numerical results are presented which illustrate the potential of the proposed multicode modulation method of the present invention as applied to the transmission of high bit rates in wireless personal communications. Throughout, we will use as an example a bit rate R_{b} =10 Mbps. Hence, the low information rate of the parallel data streams is simply R=10/K Mbps. Recall that our results are specific to the L=2 delay profile given by Equation (8). However, we note that it has been shown that the performance of various communications systems over multipath fading channels is not very sensitive to the delay profile used. In fact, if L≧2 and if a Rake receiver with maximum ratio combining among the various signals from multiple correlators is considered, better results may be obtained at the expense of higher complexity. Finally, we notice that in this study we have restricted our consideration to the high signaltonoise (SNR) or the irreducible BER performance. In other words, our main interest is the "irreducible" bit errors which occur at very high SNRs. These errors typically occur because of signal fading and/or ISI caused by multipath delay spread.
FIG. 2 lists the BER performance of the proposed multicode modulation scheme as a function of the normalized delay spread d when E_{b} /N_{o} =40 dB. Specifically, this figure lists the average bit error probability using Walsh sequences with K=N=64, msequences with period N=63 along with 63 lowrate parallel data streams, and K=64 Walsh sequences that are multiplied or concatenated with the first 64 bits of an msequence with length 127. A close observation of this figure clearly indicates the potential of the method of the present invention for the transmission of highspeed data. For example, note that when d=0.1 we have R_{b} =1/T_{c} =0.1×10^{8}, R=0.1562×10^{6}, and Δ=0.64×10^{6} =640 nsec, which is approximately the upper bound of the normalized rms delay spread in the personal communications environment. For comparison, it is noted that with this value of Δ the normalized rms delay spread is equal to 6.4 when K≡1 (i.e., over a single user channel). Obviously, the transmission over the channel with small error rates in this latter case is impossible unless one uses an alternative modulation scheme such as the one proposed here.
The importance of selecting appropriate signature sequences is also clearly indicated in FIG. 2. Specifically, note that for large delay spreads the PN sequences give the best performance. However, when the delay spread is relatively small multicode modulation with PN sequences is unusable. In contrast, note that the orthogonal Walsh sequences give the best and worst performance among the three considered codes for small values and large values of d, respectively. Finally, note that the performance of the concatenated Walsh/msequences is a compromise of the above coding schemes. This can be easily explained by presenting FIG. 3 which shows the BERs listed in FIG. 2 as a function of the DS spreadspectrum modulation "resolution" which we will define as
r=2Δ/T.sub.c (22)
Clearly, the performance of the PN sequences is expected to be very bad for values of r≦1 since in this case the delayed paths cannot be resolved. For these values, the time delays are relatively small. As result, the orthogonal walsh functions will give the best performance because of their small crosscorrelations which makes the cochannel interference nearly zero. In contrast, for large values of d the nonzero crosscorrelations of Walsh sequences are not negligible. Consequently, the performance of multicode modulation with Walsh codes is worse than that with PN sequences. Finally, note that the concatenated walsh/PNsequences combine the good features of orthogonal codes as well as PN sequences. Specifically, they solve the crosscorrelation problem of the Walsh codes when the delay spread is large and maintain the "orthogonality" property of the Walsh sequences when the delay spread is small.
Now note that the performance of the multicode modulation method is not as good as one would hope for. This is expected because the performance of the system over a single Rayleigh faded path (i.e., with K=L=1) is poor to begin with. Indeed, in this case our simulations predict that P_{e} =0.23×10^{5}. By using a fully loaded spread spectrum system (i.e., a DS spread spectrum where the total number of simultaneous users is equal to K) one would expect that the performance would degrade and becomes relatively poor. One possible solution is to use less lowrate parallel data streams as shown in FIG. 4. This will clearly improve the system performance (as there will be less cochannel interference) at the expense of the channel bandwidth usage. This is also illustrated in FIG. 5 which shows the average error probability against d when Walsh codes with N=128 are concatenated with the first 128 chips of an msequence with period 255.
The performance of spread spectrum multipleaccess over multipath fading channels can be significantly improved if one employs some type of diversity such as Selection diversity or Maximal Ratio Combining diversity. This is illustrated in FIG. 6 which lists the BER performance when antenna selection diversity of order M=2 is used. It was also found that performance among subchannels is different, ie "codeselective" fading exists, similar to frequencyselective fading that occurs in the multicarrier modulation. It is therefore expected that coding and interleaving could help reduce the associated bursty errors.
The results presented here indicate that multicode modulation can indeed be a potential candidate for highspeed transmission. To further improve the system performance and because of the special structure of multicode modulation one can cancel the interference among the subchannels using an interference cancellation method. The proposed interference cancellation method is based on a successive cochannel interference cancellation scheme whose aim is to improve the system performance by incorporating the available information about the interference signals in the decision process. This is done by regenerating estimates of the interfering signals, and then subtracting those reconstructed interference signals from the input of the desired receiver. This process is performed in a cascaded fashion in such a way that more and more of the interference signals are cancelled, thereby resulting in a significant performance improvement. This process is performed successively (i.e., in multiple stages) as follows (See FIG. 7).
We first find initial estimates of the cochannel interference terms (stage O). We will then proceed with m stages of processing the decision statistics of the desired signal. At the l stage, we reconstruct the cochannel interference terms I_{n} l! where n denotes the index of the nth bit interval using estimates of the channel (namely, the multipath time delay τ, please delay φ, and path gain β) along with estimates of the unknown transmitted symbols of data stream k, b_{n}.sup.(k) and then subtract the regenerated cochannel interference for the desired data stream received signal to obtain a new decision statistic for the lth stage. Ideally, if we can correctly estimate the cochannel interference terms at say stage l, then the decision statistic at the next stage will not include any cochannel interference terms. Consequently, significant improvement in the system performance would result. On the other hand, note that if the data estimation for say data stream k is incorrect at say stage l, then a negative version of the interference caused by this data stream is created, thereby, resulting in a new cochannel interference term (due to data stream k) at the l+1 stage that is twice the cochannel interference term of data stream k at stage l. It is therefore clear that one must have relatively good data and channel estimates in order for this iterative scheme to work well. However, note that because of the special structure of the multicode modulation system, there is only one channel for all the data streams. Hence, we only need to estimate the channel parameters once. This can be done for instance by allocating a pilot channel for that purpose. Further, notice that the signature sequences, a_{k} (t), of all the data streams are known. Hence, it is reasonable to expect that the proposed interference cancellation method to perform well in the multicode modulation system. Such performance improvement has been actually observed and was found to be true during various simulations that have been conducted.
